David Eick Keynote

Battlestar Galactica co-creator and executive producer David Eick will present an afternoon keynote address entitled, "The Making of Battlestar Galactica" today. The Super Session will focus on how to launch and produce a hit TV franchise that breaks the traditional mold seen in many television program storylines. Eick will discuss how the legendary sci-fi series came together--conceptually, technically, and politically. He will show clips from the series and provide an inside look at Battlestar Galactica's rebirth and production, including educational details about its visual effects, production design, casting, and directorial battles for creative integrity.
Eick's presentation will be followed by a sit-down discussion with Battlestar Galactica co-supervising producer and writer David Weddle.
